The tutorial for the DIY mummy bottles were posted on Tuesday! The first thing we are going to do is make the spider web placemats!

Spider Web Placemat Supplies:
– Black trash bag
– Something to trace for a perfect circle that is bigger than your plates, I used a cardboard cake base
– Scissors

First trace your circle on your trash bag and cut. Feel free to cut multiple trash bags at once, since the trash bag was not unfolded, naturally you will create two placemats at once.

Next fold your circle trash bag in half and then into fourths and onto eighths to create a pie sliced size.

Remember making snowflakes as a kid?

Well this is similar except you don’t really want a black snowflake- you want it to look like a spider web so make sure you cut chunks out that create horizontal strips across the center but obviously not the entire way across.

Make these cuts all the way to the top of the trash bag triangle like in picture.

Next I made a napkin ring holder to carry on with the spider theme.
 
Spider Napkin Ring Supplies:
– Hot glue gun
– Wire
– Napkin
– Something to wrap the wire around, like paint bottle
– Plastic spider ring from dollar store

First take your wire and wrap it around a cylinder 40 times or so. Cut the end and tuck the wire into itself to secure a wire ring made of the loops.

Next hot glue the spider to the wire ring (off the cylinder so it doesn’t stick as it dried).

Once the hot glue dries, it's time to set the table!

I used a basic white linen on my wood table so that the spider webs would really pop in the contrast! If you don’t have a linen, an old sheet will work!

Then get to your place setting and don’t forget your spider napkin ring holder- so fun!!
